(1/6) Here’s more on Wilbur Ross’ blatant conflicts of interest. On the same Dec. 19, 2016 filing I referenced earlier, Ross also disclosed multiple stakes in Boeing. Screenshots below and link here: extapps2.oge.gov/201/Presiden.n…
(2/6) On March 30, 2017, eight days after the Chevron meeting, Ross’ calendar lists a sit-down with the CEO of Boeing. It’s on p. 217 here: documentcloud.org/documents/5001…
(3/6) About two weeks *after* the meeting, the U.S. Office of Government Ethics issued Ross’ wife a document listing 12,000 Boeing shares. They traded at $177.98 on the day of the sit-down, so that’s a conflict worth at least 12,000 * $177.98 = $2,135,760.
(4/6) According to Ross himself, he did not sell the Boeing stock until May 1, 2017, more than a month after the meeting. Here’s that document: extapps2.oge.gov/201/Presiden.n…
(5/6) So what did he talk about with Boeing? The commerce department isn’t answering. So I asked the company, which made it clear that this was a business meeting, but wouldn’t say much more. (See below.)
(6/6) Which means there’s more to learn about Ross’ conflicts of interest. I’ll keep you posted when we know more. Big kudos to @weareoversight for spending the resources to get a hold of Ross’ extended calendar. Here’s the story it prompted: forbes.com/sites/danalexa…
